Lavender Off-the-Shoulder Top for Spring + I’m 27!

I’m officially 27-years-old! Woo! My birthday was this past weekend and if you follow me on Instagram, you know the weather sucked, unbelievably. However, I took the stormy day to spend time indoors, relax a little and get a bunch of things done. It was actually quite nice since Johnny paid for me to get take out and I didn’t have to cook! The weather may have been gray but my mindset was and continues to be so sunny. A lot happened while I was 26. I was on an emotional roller coaster with my Dad’s traumatic brain injury and I had to go through a lot of emotional challenges. Honestly, many of them I didn’t think I would face until my 40’s. However, every bad moment makes me grateful for the good ones. I’m stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I’m more passionate about what I do. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for 27!  Read more…

The Perfect White Lace Blouse

Since spring is starting to show up on the East Coast a bit, I’m celebrating with this all white look, including this perfect white lace blouse. One aspect I love is how well done all of the crochet lace is. You can truly see the quality in this top and feel it when you wear it. This top comes with a cami underneath, too. The sleeves have a little flair for the dramatic because they are a little bit extra, but I love it! I really like high-neck blouses and the detailing around the neck are beautiful. To better show off these details, I went with more subtle earrings and these ear climbers are the perfect touch. While I usually prefer dangling earrings or statement earrings, these are a nice touch with the fun colors and shape.  Read more…

Hearts of Pom :: Knit Your Love Cardigan

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m going to be honest, I did not watch the Super Bowl, but I do love the Eagles win because they’re underdogs! A good underdog story is always appealing to me. Perhaps it’s because almost every time I competed I was the underdog.

I’m sad Punxsutawney Phil predicts another six weeks of winter! I don’t mind winter, but I would like for temperatures to be warmer than the 30s! Plus, I’ll be getting plenty of that in PyeongChang and Gangneung when Johnny and I are there for the 2018 Winter Olympics! That’s where this wine knit your love cardigan comes in handy. The pom poms are in a heart shape, so this is perfect leading up to Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s 100 percent acrylic, which is a nice cozy and warm fabric. This is a great layering piece, whether it’s over a tank, like I am here, or with a thinner sweater. Keep in mind, this piece is hand knit, so there are some gaps where wind can cut through. This isn’t the warmest cardigan, but it’ll do for mild winter temps. Read more…

Advice on How to Start a Successful Blog

The New Year is the perfect time to put in the work to achieve the goals we set. We’re fresh and ready to tackle anything. I get so many questions about blogging, including how to start, best practices to follow and more. While I don’t consider myself a big blogger by any means, (there are blogger babes killing it with triple my following!) I do think I have a successful blog. Big dreams are my thing, so I’m nowhere near my peak, nor do I want to be. There is so much I want to accomplish in blogging, my career as a journalist and in life. I truly hope my advice on how to start a successful blog can inspire you to take the plunge! Read more…

Blush Lace up Sweater + Pink Chanel

Happy Monday Friends! I’m a big fan of the lace up trend, so of course, a lace up sweater is one of my most-loved pieces for fall. This particular sweater comes in four colors, however, the blush is my favorite. The chunky knit and oversize fit make this lace up sweater a super cozy and comfy choice this fall. The lace up detailing in the back is the star and a nice surprise feature. Completely adjustable, you can make this lace up sweater as tight or as loose as you want. One of my favorite ways to wear it is with side off the shoulder. However, you can definitely lace it up a bit tighter to have it on both shoulders. Plus, this sweater is also on sale for less than $40! The hunter green is a nice choice, too.  Read more…
